Our photos tell the story of our lives…I remember when I was a kid spending my summer lazy days with my GrandMa. She showed me so many photos and she told me so many wonderful stories! My love for photography started during those summers. Now I feel the pressure to start to build a photo legacy.
A legacy is something that is handed down from one generation to the next.
It can be a motto or something material as a collection. But this is a photography blog so…our favorite collection is photos!!!
Instead of just handing down a random collection of unorganized photos to future generations in your family, wouldn’t it be great to create something special and add the details in every photo? So your family’s stories aren’t forgotten or lost.
My GrandMa wrote details behind every image. Year, who is in the photo, where and why. For her it was a way to remember.
Creating a photo legacy involves taking some active steps to organize and manage your photos, but it’s worth the effort!
1. Book a quality wedding photographer for a timeless result
We love photographs so much that this is our job! We always looking for family photographs because they tell a family’s story.
Choosing the right photographer that fit our desire is not simple! Even more if this is our Wedding Photographer!
Take adequate time when it comes to choosing your wedding photographer. Choose someone that you can form a relationship with, someone you can trust, someone that has a thorough understanding of what is most important to you, and someone who takes the kind of pictures that you can imagine yourself in.
Remember, this person will be capturing one of the most special days of your life, the beginning of your legacy.
2. Schedule family photographs once a year
Gretchen Rubin once said, “The days are long and the years are short.” There are no truer words for a parent! Because the years pass all too quickly, it’s so important to plan time to capture your growing family once a year.
Having professional photos taken of your family year after year will soon turn into one of your most prized possessions. Those images will fill the walls of your home, reminding you of sweet seasons and hard seasons and all the things you never want to forget as a family.
They will tell your story. And most of all, they will be a gift to your children and grandchildren one day.
We offer special prices for new family and we love grow with you!
3. Have a wedding album made
We believe that every couple should have a wedding album, and that it should be your first heirloom. An album that will hold the most precious pictures of when it all began.
An album that will be pulled out each anniversary as a remembrance of your day, the day that you thought, “I couldn’t love you more than I do now.” An album that will be looked over when you’ve had a fight and you need a reminder of the reason that you committed your lives to each other. An album that will stand the time of your marriage, and will passed down to your children and grandchildren, as a reminder of the strong marriages that they have to look up to.
All our album are Hand Made in Italy. Contact us for more informations.
4. Fill your home’s walls with memories
Grab a blank sheet of paper, your favorite pen, and take 15 minutes to walk through your
home. This is our advice to you. The purpose is to look at your photos hanging in your frames, and ask yourself these questions:
Do I want to keep this frame?
Do I want to keep this photo in the frame?
What replacements do I need to make?
Write down all of your notes regarding your frames, photos in your frames, and sizes of prints needed. The purpose is to refresh your home and fill it with images that bring you JOY and remind you of precious moments!
5. Put a system in place for organizing your photos
You don’t have to be a professional photographer to preserve your family’s memories well. It doesn’t matter whether you use your iPhone or a professtional camera.
What does matter is focusing on your family and your legacy.
From physical prints to digital files, it’s importatnt to have a system in place so you can enjoy your photos instead of feeling cluttered and overwhelmed!
